We all love fashion, isn’t it! But being fashionable doesn’t always mean that you wear expensive clothes or accessories; you can wear trendy and simple clothes and yet look fashionable. Fashion shows today have crossed the glamorous ramps and carpets of the popular dress designers have reached local brands, tiny streets, and corners. In fact, interestingly many corporations and colleges these days are being seen organizing fashion shows on their annual fests and programs. Local brands organize shows for popularizing their brands and clothes. You may come across several occasions where you may have to deliver a speech on fashion. You can use these speeches as examples and prepare your own speech on fashion to impress your audience.
Long and Short Speech on Fashion

Good Evening Friends!
Thank you for being a part of this fashion show. Like every year, our company is organizing this fashion show to promote the designer wears manufactured by our brand. This time, the company has decided to donate 50% of the earnings earned from this show to one of the charity organizations that we are associated with. I am your host for the evening and am going to share with you what is my take on fashion and what essentially comprises this term.
To be honest, the very word “fashion” attracts everyone. To put it in simple words, it is basically the style of wearing clothes, accessories, and ornaments according to the ruling trends or one’s own individual preferences. Fashion, in essence, is the art of transforming a simple attire into one that of elegance. For some, it is also about wearing designer, differently styled and appealing clothes, drapes or fancy robes.
Fashion has a major role to play in establishing a trend among people who follow it. Fashion is not only about wearing stylish clothes or accessories, etc, it is also to first understand the occasion, culture, and style of a particular person or place and then design the attire accordingly. Thus, fashion designers take a lot of time to study the occasion, place, material and several other things before creating designer outfits. They also have to consider the technology they use, stitching methods, fabric, etc specific to the size, weight, height, and complexion of the person who is going to carry the trend.
In earlier days, fashion was often used to symbolize richness and elegance; but today fashion has reached every house and the whole idea of fashion has drastically changed as it is more about wearing and carrying your attitude well irrespective of the kind of clothes you are wearing.
Fashion is catching up quite fast in India. Even if you ignore being fashionable yourself; you can never ignore someone who is wearing fashionable attire. If someone wears a shabby dress, you may remember the dress but if someone dresses up well; you will always remember the person; that’s the tremendous impact of fashion on our psyche.
Fashion is not just limited to clothes; its reach is far beyond clothes and attire. It’s about being neatly draped from top to bottom. The matching bottom should be teamed up with the right top, matching bangles or bracelets, watch, shades, footwear, etc in order to carry well your fashion sense.
Many rich people like to outsource this business to a professional fashion designer or makeup artist who can well take care of the taste of the person and create a suitable and fashionable drape meeting the purpose of the occasion. Fashion designers are indeed creative people and consistent too; they must know their clients’ mentality; his likes and dislikes, etc for creating a comfortable yet fashionable look.
Media also plays a strong role in influencing people; there are several fashion-specific television channels, teleserial, movies, etc that give ideas on fashion to people. Many people like to imitate celebrities and renowned figures. Online stores offer various types of discounts on fashionable clothes; thereby making fashion accessible within everyone’s budget.
In short, fashion is an indispensable part of our lives. Thus, instead of arguing whether fashion or the latest trend is good or bad for our culture; it is wise to adopt new fashion rules and create something on your own which is trendy and decent at the same time.

Good Evening Friends!
I am glad to announce the launch of our boutique today. We will be dealing in all fashionable attires for men, women, and kids. Our main target is to make fashion accessible and affordable for everyone. Thus, we are also taking the help of social media to promote our business.
In today’s time, fashion plays a very important role in our lives for it is considered a medium of expressing ourselves. The dresses and accessories or ornaments that a person wears help them in identifying with a group that follows a particular line of profession, religion or lifestyle, etc. Fashion has great significance in India too despite being a land of tradition and culture as it helps to enhance one’s personality and looks. Thus, the very word ‘fashion’ today has become identical with the whole Indian population as, believe it or not, everyone is fashionable in some or the other way if observed closely.
India is a land of rich culture and tradition; it is divided into five major regions: North, South, East, West, and Central. Each region has its own tradition and sense of dressing. Fashion in India; thus has evolved through centuries. While women in the north wear Salwar Kurtas, people in the south like to flaunt Sarees. Western people love to wear Blouse and Skirts, popularly known as ‘Choli-Ghagra’; people in Central and Eastern India wear Sarees in different styles. People love to experiment with the same traditional clothes in different ways and styles in order to stay fashionable and abreast of the latest trends. But the good part is that people are adopting each other’s style and fashion which shows the developing bond and unity amongst people.
There are several factors that have contributed to the growth of fashion as a whole. Though, the rich and the famous people, political or royal figures have moved the trends of fashion for ages; but today fashion has reached common people as well and the advertising media has contributed greatly to update people about the trending fashion.
Fashion today has gone beyond the glamour and has become a way of life; it’s the reflection of the inner beauty and comfort quotient for people. We all want to look good and the world of fashion has so much to offer; thus we can adapt our own style according to comfort and the moving trend. People, especially women are more conscious about fashion and are seen to be constantly experimenting in terms of carrying different hair looks, styles of clothing, etc.
Fashion is never constant; the trend keeps changing; fashion designers very creatively would merge the old styles with new trends and introduce a new fashion altogether. While it is important that people follow the new trends in order to remain fashionable; it is also important that people understand the makeup of their body and comfort needs before adopting any trend, because fashion is also about carrying yourself well rather than following the trends blindly.
India is rich in textile heritage and each part in India has its own exclusive traditional costumes and attires. Though traditional clothes are worn in rural parts, people in urban areas also love to experiment with traditional clothes in a fashionable manner. For example, a traditional ‘kurta’ teamed up with fashionable jeans becomes a trend.
It is good to see that the traditional techniques of Indian embroidery such as zardozi, chikan, crewel, etc are getting revived by the fashion designers of today and these traditional styles are reaching the international world of fashion too.
Now, please allow me to rest my speech here as I have said enough on the topic today; I hope you all get to enjoy your evening with us. Also, please continue to promote fashion with all the support being given from our boutique.

A Very Good Morning Everyone!
Today, this congregation has been organized in our fashion designing institute for welcoming our new students of this year to the institute. Our institute provides a platform to the people who want to make their future bright with the passion of fashion and as a chairman of this institute, it is a pleasure to welcome you all to our institute. Before you all step into this world of fashion designing, I would like to say a few words on fashion for you.
Fashion is everywhere in this world and it differs from place to place wherever we go because every person has its own kind of taste of fashion. When we think about fashion, the first word that comes to our mind is clothes. If we talk about India, it is a country with a huge variety of cultures as well as tradition. Cultures play a very important role in the molding of fashion. This country represents different colors of changing cultures and traditions. Here, fashion plays a very important role because here style differs from culture to culture and occasion to occasion. Every occasion has its own kind of fashion such as during “Navratri” people tend to wear “Chania Choli” and during “Ganesh Chaturthi” ladies tend to wear “Nauvari Sarees” etc. Thus, people wear different kinds of clothes at every festival.
But fashion is not limited to clothes but everything that is in trend is simply fashion. Most people style their clothes, accessories, etc according to the trend but on the other hand, some people choose clothes according to their culture or traditions. Some people mix their traditional style with that of the trendy style for creating a fusion.
India is highly influenced by western style own living. Most of the people in India wear western clothing because they feel more comfortable in them. During the 1990s, India witnessed a huge change in fashion. There were new means of advertising a new fashion like films and advertisements. Films play an important role in bringing up new fashion in the market. People get highly influenced by films. The designed and styled clothes in films create a desire in the mind of people to wear them and thus it brings a turn in fashion.
To become a successful fashion designer you have to go through the historic fashion of the world for gaining knowledge about what kind of fashion was there in the early stages. We have to work according to the style and taste of people for whom we are designing. We all know that change in fashion happens very quickly and we have to be aware of all the trends so that we could design accordingly and better than the present.
On this note, I would like to conclude my speech and welcome you all to the world of fashion designing. I hope that you all will make your dream come true in this institute with your passion for fashion and have a bright future.
Thank you and I wish you all a great day ahead!

A Very Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen!
Today we all are gathered here to celebrate the fifth anniversary of our fashion brand. This is a very auspicious moment for us because we have completed five years of success and to celebrate this day, we have thrown a party today. As we know that our fashion brand is quite famous all over India for its accessories and as well as clothing, I am feeling very proud to be a part of this brand. On this occasion, I would like to say a few words on fashion that is the base of our brand. Our brand produces accessories and clothes that set up new trends in the market.
Fashion has connections with everything. From our clothes to our accessories and almost with everything that we use in our daily life, fashion is connected. Every person has a desire in the heart to look good or the best. A person feels good when he/she looks good to people and gets compliments from others. People experiment with different kinds of fusions especially women. There is a huge use of a fusion of traditional clothes and accessories with western-style clothing. A person’s personality usually reflects from his or her dressing sense and style of living. People usually want to wear something that is quite different, comfortable and trendy.
In the ancient period, our ancestors used to cover their bodies with leaves. After some time, they started covering their bodies with animal skin and after that the invention of clothes taken place. After a passage of time, people started experimenting with new things with clothes according to their comforts and preferences.
Today we can see a huge difference between early fashion and today’s trends. There is a drastic change in many things that are related to our lifestyle. Our lifestyle has been transformed by the use of high technology for e.g. in today’s world, there is a fashion of using smartphones but in early times before the invention of cell phones, people used pigeons for communication and then mailboxes.
Fashion highlights the cultural beauty of social history and people’s comforts. India is quite rich in its textile tradition and here every region has its own kind of traditional costumes and attires. In rural India, there is a huge following of traditional dresses and people are still wearing clothes according to their culture and tradition. While in urban India, there is a vast influence of western wear and fusion of western and tradition especially in metropolitan cities.
To make our brand more successful than it is now, we all have to understand the comforts of people and traditions of India. We should try to illuminate our Indian tradition more and more all around the world because we are leaving behind our traditional Indian style in fashion.
On this note, I would like to wind up my words and hope that our brand will reach great heights of success in its new journey.
Thank you and I wish you all a great day ahead!
